As TAGI’s first birthday was creeping closer we really wanted to treat ourselves with a photoshoot, a very specifically themed photoshoot: From wedding gown to Angel Gown.
Now, as a young NPO our finances are limited and so we relied on the kindness of others. In our last newsletter we mentioned that this is what we were planning and that we are hoping to find a professional photographer that would consider donating his or her time and skills to help us. And this is where it gets interesting…
The newsletter reached a friend of mine, Chanie, that lives in Amsterdam – this friend is the older sister of Chrismari Elsbury (the dress that started it all). Chanie then phoned a photographer friend of hers in SA. Then we got into contact. Said photographer had a full schedule at the time and she put us in contact with her second shooter. This is where we finally got into contact with Jacki White from Jacki White Photography.
I told her who we are, what we do and the usual info. I explained to her what we were planning for the photoshoot and while she’s taking the photos we would also like some technical shots for a training manual I’m putting together for my volunteers. And then add some extra shots on for the guests that will be popping in and out during the course of the day. She immediately said yes! She came all the way to us, spent the entire day and she donated all her time and skills to us, for which we cannot thank her enough!
We are yet to publish an album with the “Wedding gown to Angel Gowns” photos as this will take some time to build, but in the meantime please click here to enjoy some of our birthday shots that Jacki took for us.
She is absolutely amazing! She is a fun person and great to work with. The entire day she didn’t flinch once. She achieved everything we needed, she was patient and knowledgeable. Her work is great and we received our edited photos in no time. We highly recommend her! If anyone is interested to make a booking with her, we have added her contact details below;

Thank you so much for making this photoshoot so special for us!
